Last month, the Luddenham Uniting Church celebrated its 133rd Anniversary. On the 24th November, they dedicated a stone monument to acknowledge past residents that were buried in unmarked graves. These graves have been there for over a hundred years and there are no records or any way to identify the occupants of the graves. Well done Luddenham Uniting Church.

Preparation for the 116th Luddenham Show has started. It will be held on the 7th and 8th March and the committee are currently looking for sponsors, volunteers as well as ideas for entertainment and stall holders. Further information can be found at luddenhamshow.com.au or on the Luddenham Show Facebook page. You can also email secretary@luddenhamshow.com.au.

The first look at our new airport has now been unveiled, with architects appointed to design the state-of-the-art terminal precinct at Western Sydney International (Nancy-Bird Walton) Airport. Western Sydney Airport Chief Executive Officer Graham Millett said an architectural team consisting of London-based Zaha Hadid Architects and Cox Architecture in Sydney was selected from more than 40 entrants as the winners of the terminal precinct design competition. “The brief was to design an airport that the people of Western Sydney can be proud of and provide a real sense of place that pays tribute to the natural landforms, history and features of Greater Sydney” Mr Millett said.

“While the exterior of the terminal complements the natural landscape beautifully, we’ve always said that our focus was on the customer journey within the terminal and that really shines through in these concept designs”.

Luddenham will once again host the 2019 NSW PGA Open and it will be played at Twin Creeks Golf and Country Club. The tournament champion will be crowned at the conclusion of 72 holes of play commencing on Thursday 28 November. The winner will be crowned on Sunday 1, sharing in a prize pool of $400,000.

With the current fire situation, it is worth mentioning Luddenham Showground is a Neighbourhood Safer Place in times of emergencies. You can bring animals to the showground including horses and cattle and you will be required to stay with your animals on the showground. It is a Place of Last Resort in bush fire emergencies only. Neighbourhood Safer Places are to be used when all other options in your bush fire survival plan can’t be put into action safely.

If you have an opinion on what Luddenham of the future should be like, please email your thoughts or views to willmingtons@bigpond.com. I would like to take this opportunity to wish you and your family a safe and Merry Christmas and wonder what 2020 will bring to Luddenham.
